Having just spent 6 nights in the area, we tried as many restaurants as we could while we were there. On one of those nights, we went to l'Orange Bistro. RESERVATION NEEDED? SURE To play it safe, we called about an hour before we went to ensure they would have space and made a reservation. When we got there, the... More

We picked this Baie St Paul resto for its beautiful curb appeal. It did not disappoint. Appetizers of fried calamari with parmesan cheese and balsamic reduction and Charlevoix Angus beef tartar were great for starters. My main dish of salmon filet with rice,vegetables and orange sauce was perfectly cooked. Nice elegant ambience inside. Friendly prompt service. Lovely restaurant in this... More

Conveniently on the way back from Tadoussac, we stopped for dinner on a lovely evening, but without previous TA research. NOT a good idea. The outdoor patio was nice, but the traffic was less pleasant (our fault for choosing outside). The food was passable. But it took forever for the order to be taken and as long again for the... More

We spent three days in Baie-St-Paul and tried many of this town restaurant (see my other reviews) This was the best restaurant. I had a Migneron (a local cheese) fondant as an appetizer. It was a very good dish, but a bit too sugary for my taste (there was possibly too much balsamic reduction on my plate). Then, I had... More

We only had a glass of wine and a bear because the menu did not have anything a vegetarian of a vegan would enjoy.

The local micro brew was $10 a pint ($2 more than down the road). I had a penne with mushrooms, a mystery meat (I just forget what I ordered), local cheese. The paste was firm and the dish tasted fine. My wife had a salad with sausage. She liked it. The room had a nice atmosphere. The service was very... More

Lovely afternoon meal. Traditional fare on the patio complemented with a pint from the local micro-brasserie (brewery). Portions are generous and the food imbues a spirit of fusion that one would not expect. The local picnic plate featured lovely local charcuterie and fromage. Worth the trip.

It was the nicest resto in Baie St-Paul. The staff was friendly, very nice (although we are not French-Canadians, the waitress talked to us, asked us were we came from etc. etc. compared to other places were they hardly say hello to you ). The food is really good, prices are the same as in all the other places, but... More

Had lunch there. Average lunch fare - burger was pan fried instead of grilled. Facing the street so it was loud as many motorcycles and cars were passing by that day. Server was attentive and helpful.
